Sayings of the day

** If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
** Don't assume malice for what stupidity can explain.
** The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
** He who hesitates is probably right.
** If you think there is good in everybody, you haven't met everybody.
** Birds of a feather flock together and poop on your car.

LOL Those are great.

Hanlon's Razor:
Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

I just wrote a post about www.despair.com...do you know about them? Strikes me as the kind of thing you might find hilarious. You'll never run out of sayings for the day after you visit them!!

The one on conversation really rings true. Another spot on quotation is by the painter, Whistler: "If other people are going to talk, conversation becomes impossible." -- maybe more true than we'd like to believe.

Hard work may pay off in the long run, but procrastination always pays off today.
